Don't really want an argument with you as I respect you to much.
That being said, when I purchased my boat over 12 years ago, 8, 10 inch opening ports
were glued shut with 5200, anti-bond wasn't available then. I use my recipe I created enough to fill a 5 gallon bucket to just cover the port light, let each one soak for about 4 hrs. The 5200 debonded from the chrome and glass and just pulled off in strips.
2 weeks ago I was down at my boat preparing to restore 2 chrome over bronze deck
hatches. Someone had also used 5200 to glue in replacement plexiglass. I didn't have any of my concoction at the dock
. So I went across the Street to West Marine
, got a 1,5 ounce bottle of the AntiBond at $17.50 plus tax. I worked for a 4 hours getting no where fast.
So I loaded up the hatches back to the shop and used my recipe. Had both hatches cleaned and glass out ready for the chrome shop, in 3 hrs.

You can waste your time making lame imitations, or just shell out a little for a product a major company had scientists who know what they are doing design. If it takes me half an hour to fart around making my own, I have to bill over $50 for that. Much cheaper to order up. Time is money
PS-Don't see any denatured as you claimed in there. Sure you've ever even used the stuff?
